Google For Nonprofits

It appears that Google wants to hear your Nonprofit story and possibly share it.  The instructions are straightforward and are as follows:

No matter how big or small, we want to hear about what you or your nonprofit is doing to change the world. Share your story about how you are making a change and we may feature you on our website.

What You Need to Submit

  • Your Name
  • Name of Organization
  • Location (city, state)
  • Website
  • What change did your organization make?:45 characters (Not a lot of characters here folks so make it clear and make if snappy)
  • Tell us more! Did you use Google tools to make your change?: 240 characters (Clearly their hook, if you used their stuff I am sure it would certainly help your odds of getting posted)
  • url to a picture
  • Image description: 80 characters

Due Date: March 10th?

While the form itself does not state a closing date the originating post from Goeff Livingston indicated that it was March 10th. I will update if I get more clarification.

Updated: There does not appear to be a closing date on this folks. Still, no reason to put off submitting your story.

What Will Google Do With It?

It is not entirely clear to me how to answer this question. "We may feature it on our website" is a little ambiguous as I am not sure what site that is? What would you say is "The Google Website"?  Regardless, there is plenty of potential benefit from getting exposure from Google itself for your nonprofit.  As of March 2011 Google still owns the lion's share of the search engine market with 84.72%. No one else is even close.  That sounds like a good cheerleader for an organization to have if you ask me.

Submit Your Story Here

Good luck everyone and I hope to see your Organization in the Google soon. Be sure to let us know in the comments if you have or are planning on submitting. We want to be able to say "we knew them before they got famous on the internet".
